Where do you work? A large chain or a smaller private business?
I know that larger chains (petsmart etc...) are cheaper.
Also I am in the states, you are in BC, maybe that make a difference?
I know for me to get Nanook groomed (he is bigger & fluffier but kept clean) the cheapest I can find is $75 (not including petsmart, petco etc... Its just me personally but I won't bring my dogs there). And that only includes the bath, no extras no anal glands or nails etc...
